USAF selects UEI for UH-1N HUMS upgrade
WALPOLE, Mass., - United Electronic Industries of Walpole, Mass., announced last month the UEI-HUMS1 in-flight health monitoring system has been released for production delivery to Tyonek Global Services, and subsequent installation onto USAF aircraft. The unit recently passed DO-160 certification as required by the USAF for deployment on the Bell UH-1N Huey helicopter. In addition to the DO-160 tests, the system has already passed the requisite MIL-STD-810 testing for use on the aircraft.
The UEI-HUMS1 is a modified version of UEI’s popular DNR-MIL data acquisition chassis. The UEI-HUMS1 solution simplifies life cycle management and increases reliability by providing a single LRU replacing two separate LRUs of the previous design. The I/O provided in the UEI-HUMS1 includes dozens of Analog, Digital, Synchro/Resolver, Speed/Rotation and ARINC-429 interfaces which monitor critical aircraft systems including engine, transmission, flight control positions, fuel and hydraulic systems and more.
The UEI-HUMS1 will become a COTS chassis and join UEI’s other military solutions with the company’s revolutionary 10-year availability guarantee and 5-year warranty. UEI optimizes the size, weight and power at the best cost.
